What’s up, people?: Sunday Musings #81


Remember my laptop was making weird noises a while ago, and then it subdued? Well, that didn’t last long. I had to send it for a repair last week and I am making do with an old laptop for now.

It has been a learning curve but it works for now. But damn, I miss my laptop very much, especially because a number of keys don’t work in this one.

And I hear it is going to take another 2 weeks to get it back, no thanks to the CoCid situation. Sigh.

What I read this week

I know I had been talking about reading Daisy Jones and the Six for more than two weeks now and I finished it this week finally.

And not just that, I also finished Lord Edgaware dies by Agatha Christie, read as a part of the ClassicsNChristie book club.

Not bad eh? That brings a total of books on this year’s reading scale. And this is how my A to Z reading challenge looks like now.

What I watched this week

As I was saying last week, I am keeping the Netflix viewing to the minimal. Each day this week I watched

  • Community season five two episodes or less
  • Line of Duty one season

There is something about the Brit thrillers right? I love them.

On my blog

I am quite happy how the week turned out on the blog. Here is a recap in case you missed out the buzz.

  1. Good luck with the laptop! I hope they can get it fixed for you. It’s hard to use a different machine when you’re used to a certain one!

    Lovely pics as always! that sky bridge looks amazing!!

  2. Hey Gayathri, it has been a hot week here! I only read one book and watched two shows this week, as I was back to work almost full time this week, but it was good to be back! Take care and happy reading in the coming week! 😃

  3. I haven’t watched any TV shows at all lately. I kind of get stuck on Twitter a lot these days – so my reading is down, too. But it’s OK, I did read some good books anyway.
    I need to read Poet X, as I have that one on my kindle. There are so many great books I want to read. Hopefully, being off from work right now will help with that.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading, Gayathri

  4. Oh, that’s terrible about your laptop. Let’s hope you have it back soon. I don’t even have a spare laptop, so I’m sitting here, fingers crossed, hoping that mine stays functional.

    Enjoy your books and your week, and I do love Netflix these days. I haven’t tried the Britbox movies lately. Something to consider.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, and stay safe.

  5. I remember you commenting about your laptop making weird noises. Not the best time to have to send it off to be repaired, I agree. I hope they sort it out for you soon. I have so many books I should be reading and instead I’m rereading some old favorites. I think it’s comfort reading. LOL

  6. here;s hoping your laptop reaches you sooner than you think ..i hate using anything else other than my laptop too.. even for the things people use the phone, i prefer to use the laptop 🙂 (like whatsapp and insta….)
    and i loved the poet x;; that sky bridge is so cool

  7. Laptop issues are the worst. Mine got completely crashed last month. Using a new one now.
    Great going in the A to Z Challenge! I need six more to complete mine and still can’t find anything for X and Z.

  8. It’s horrible when your computer has to be repaired. At least it can be fixed (hopefully). I hope you are enjoying Line of Duty, I’ve watched them all (that have been released) and they are fab.
